Celebrate Jewish American Heritage Month with a fun and festive Klezmer performance by our local CBI Klezmer Band! The band will also discuss the history and cultural significance of Klezmer music throughout time and today.

Klezmer is a style of folk music that draws upon the traditions of Ashkenazi Judaism and Eastern European folk traditions. The Klezmer genre places heavy emphasis on music for celebrations. Many Americans may know klezmer either from dancing the hora or via the score to the Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof. Typically Klezmer bands are made up of different combinations of woodwind and string instruments, including clarinets, violins, trumpets, tubas, accordions, and others.
